Large Flower Background.

Flower Background2
   Here are two cards I have made with The large Flower Background from Hero Arts and two different looks as well.  The top card is stained with Distress stains and inks and the leaves have been coloured with my new distress markers.  The flower heads are paper pieced and also shaded with some distress ink.



































For the second card I have stamped and embossed the image onto patterned paper and then coloured with distress markers.   I love how you can create such different looks with one stamp.  My blogging friend Virginia also created this fabulous card with the same stamp, I love all the blues together, so pretty!!

These cards are for the Simon Says Challenge this week and also for the current Hero Arts Challenge.

The top card is a real hit with my son who loves wearing bright colourful shirts, when he saw it sitting on the desk ready to be photographed, he said that the pattern and colours would look fabulous made up into a shirt!! He loves the Flower Power look LOL!

Hope you have had a great weekend.

I love them both - the ribbons are fabulous and I love the shaped card bases! And I'm curious to know what you think about the Distress markers - I'm pretty sure I want some, but wanted to wait to hear what folks are thinking first!
